Drivers for JMicron+Marvell PATA and others(r8169/sky2/ahci)
Hi to all,
I updated my custom OEM.TGZ with support for JMicron PATA controllers.
I ported the driver from kernel 2.6.21 to ESX4i.
Please, note that I don't tested it because I don't have the hardware (I do because someone asked for it in the forum).
Moreover, this controller is mixing SATA (in AHCI mode) and IDE (as emulation). You need to set your correct configuration in "simple.map" adjusting the PCI ID subclass acording to your hardware. In my custom OEM.TGZ "197b:2361" only loads "pata_jmicron.o" driver and "197b:2363" only loads "ahci.o". Please, change as you need!
* NIC Realtek 8169
(yes, the PCI version!)
* NIC Marvell Yukon
* STORAGE Enhanced AHCI
* STORAGE Marvell PATA
(88SE61xx, ported & compiled by myself)
* STORAGE JMicron PATA
(JMB36x, ported & compiled by myself)
Finally, please, continue porting more drivers to ESX4i !!!!
